EDIT: as you can see, there are several 'revisions' now, but they are all only about Syaoran's hair color. I received quite a lot of complaining about it on deviantart, since it seems like most people are used to the dark brown of the tv series, so I made variations. The darkest one is obviously the anime version, the 2 others are different shades from more manga pictures by Clamp (the 1st version I uploaded is also from manga illustrations), I really just use the eyedropper tool and make slight changes for them to fit better together, I didn't invent anything.

This is a *very* late birthday present to one of my dearest friend, amethyst-rose! ^^

I used 2 scans of K-ON! as base ([link] and [link] ), as you can see, they are all girls but I thought I could manipulate it well enough to include Syaoran and Eriol, and this is how Syaoran turned from a little girl in mini skirt to what he is now for example :P

As usual, things ended up being a lot more complicated than they seem at first.

I thought: "well, I just have to find the right faces for them and cut/past!"....not. How naive I was ;_; Finding the right pics was hard and in the end, since nothing satisfied me completely, I ended up combining several scans and redrawing the parts I wasn't happy with. The one who underwent the heaviest editing is Tomoyo: her eyes shape are actually from a TRC|Sakura scans, her hair is a mix of my redrawing and the K-on! character scan, her face is my redrawing too. (the others characters were easier since I found better scans for them and adjusted them accordingly). Tomoyo's camcorder is from TRC too~ I also made a pairing item between her and Sakura in the form of the hair accessories.

Making Syaoran pants was a bit more tricky than expected ouch! but the most boring thing was drawing the pattern ugh...

The cakes and pastries, again, my naive self thought that extracting and reconstructing the missing parts would be just fine but it ended up being a real chore ;__; That part took a while...

Well, beside that they are changes a bit everywhere, some more visible than others, but I won't start listing everything.

I personally like how relaxed Eriol looks, like a cat! Loving Syaoran confident looks, he is neither sulking or blushing yey! XD I slipped a brush in the BG with a star/moon theme (top right corner), unfortunately, the winged star was buried under Eriol's feet. Oh! and I had no intention at all to make a EriolxTomoyo pairing here, I just wanted for SxS to be side by side, and by following the original scans they just naturally ended up in this position, that said you are free to interpret it however you want ;)

That said, I will seriously start saving for a tablet, I don't think I can go any further than this with a mouse.

If you like it and have time while passing by, please review and +fav! THANKS!

    Pretty creative! It's been awhile since we've seen something
    from you. It's very pleasant to see :3 I love the manipulative work you did with
    all the faces, it looks very nature and against the soft fussy look of the BG it really
    captures those warm moments in CCS I loved. The only thing I would've love to seen
    was darker outlines on the bodies, but it's nothing big that distracts. Awesome job <3
